Studying Psalm 62


What are some of the key ideas or words that have been repeated throughout the Psalm?
v1 salvation
v2 rock & …salvation, fortress
v3 rock & …rock & …salvation, fortress
v7 salvation, mighty rock


This was written by David possibly during the days of Absalom’s rebellion (2 Samuel 15-18)

We can place our hope in God’s ultimate salvation

Key verse : v5-6
‘Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, I will not be shaken.’


Q: When we face with unjust situations in our lives, who do we choose to look to? Man or God?
A: God

Q: Why?
A: The security of trusting God prevails over the insecurity of relying on human devices

Subject : What should we do when we face opposition?
Complement :
Rest in God when enemies assault (v2-4)
Trust in God at all times (v5-8)
God will reward each person(v9 & v12)

Application :
Is there an unjust situation in your life now? If there is, bring it before the Lord and find rest in the powerful God
